Sydney’s all-star hit musical of summer 2019 comes to The Art House for exclusive premiere season BEFORE opening at Sydney Opera House! Tickets are now on sale.

In The Heights is the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, featuring music & lyrics from Hamilton creator and Moana song-writing mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda.

This summer, The Art House stage will be transformed into a vibrant Manhattan street corner as The Art House presents its first all-star musical, ‘In The Heights’. The four-time Tony Award-winning musical from one of America’s most acclaimed writers and producers, Lin-Manuel Miranda (Moana, Hamilton) comes to Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in mid-January, but not before an exclusive premiere season at The Art House.

In a coup for the Central Coast, not only will The Art House present this salsa-fuelled musical, but leading its all-star cast is Central Coast local and Hi-5 star, Joe Kalou.

In The Heights combines the sounds and rhythms of salsa, soul, hip-hop and merengue with explosive street dance and rap. This revolutionary musical has been a Broadway smash hit since its debut in 2008. Uplifting and energising, In the Heights takes audiences on a journey into the lives of the residents of Washington Heights – a New York City neighbourhood on the brink of change – and in the process poignantly captures what it means to chase your dreams while staying connected to your community.

The characters of Washington Heights grapple with love, lust, identity and ambition – from Usnavi: the first generation Dominican-American kiosk owner facing rising rents and gentrification, to Nina: forced by poverty to drop out of her Ivy-league school, and Benny: the ambitious wannabe entrepreneur. All the while, the promise of a life-changing lottery ticket hangs in the air.

These Art House performances follow a hugely popular sell-out season at the Hayes Theatre Co. earlier this year, which saw tickets disappear before the opening night. Directed by Luke Joslin and produced by Blue Saint Productions in association with Neil Gooding, In the Heights at The Art House features a diverse cast of exceptional Australian performers who deliver an exhilarating and moving production.

Featured Artists: Stephen Lopez (Usnavi), Joe Kalou (Benny), Olivia Vasquez (Vanessa) and Luisa Scrofani (Nina).

Performing Company: Marty Alix, Monique Montez, Libby Asciak, Alexander Palacio, Ana Maria Belo, Margi de Ferranti, Richard Valdez, Stephen Tannos, Will Centurion, Michelle Rozario, Samantha Bruzzese, Romina Villafranca and Dayton Tavares.

Nominated for an impressive 13 Tony Awards in 2008, In the Heights is a unique musical experience that will leave audiences uplifted and tapping their toes.
